Earth Day Activities Around Utah

People around Utah will celebrate Earth Day by participating in a wide variety of activities, including some where volunteers will labor to repair environmental damage. Other events will focus on educating people to live in a more environmentally friendly manner.

Earth Day is actually Sunday, but many of the activities will be held on Saturday. Here are a couple samples taken from this newspaper article.

Near Logan, a group will labor to block ATV access to illegal trails in the Mt. Naomi Wilderness Area.

In Moab from noon until 4 p.m. Saturday, "Chalk One Up!" will host a festival at Millcreek Parkway. According to the Earth Day Network, this is a "community celebration encouraging healthy habits and habitats for humans and our animal companions. Event sponsored by Moab Arts Council, city of Moab, Humane Society of Moab Valley and others."

In Salt Lake City, Hogle Zoo will throw a "Party for the Planet" on Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm, with a talk by Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson and activities such as recycling paper and learning about hybrid cars. Admission is $1 off that day for anyone bringing in 12 aluminum cans or one no-longer-needed cell phone.
